Best Tuesday I’ve Ever Experienced

Hey guys, Andrew here, bringing you a post about a day that was immediately placed in one of the best days ever! Normally, on a Tuesday, nothing would happen. It usually became the relaxing day after the worst day ever: Monday. Which I did not post about cause I did not feel like writing 1,000 words about a boring day. So anyway, let’s get talking about the day.

I woke up in the morning, feeling quite relaxed. Though, as I woke up, I did not feel like getting out of my bed. I had that feeling some people get when they wakeup and feel that the  blankets are set just right and are warm/cold enough and comfortable enough to convince you not to get out of bed. And convince me the bed did. I was acting as if today were a Summer day instead of school day, so I had no intention of getting up at any time. Once I went back to sleep, had a crazy dream that I cannot remember at the time, and woke up, I set myself ready for the day. I went downstairs and ate breakfast whilst greeting my mother with a smile and a “good morning”. I ate my animal cracker breakfast, then put all the cereal equipment back where they belong, and then decided to work on my school. I was not worried that I had missed a class while I went back to sleep in my bedroom.. well, maybe a little bit, but not too much. As I logged onto my school profile, there were, surprisingly, no classes today. What? Was this going to be like this for the rest of the days? I was feeling quite bad inside because what if there were no classes up until I left k12? I wouldn’t have time to say goodbye to any of my school friends! 😦

But having no classes at the moment was fine for me, just as long as it was only today. I took the advantage of having no classes so I could work on my main OLS subjects. I went straight for Composition, since it had no assessment at the end of the lesson, and skipped right through it, acting as if it was completed. Ah, I’m such a bad person.. Anyways.. after I finished or skipped through the Composition I went to Science. I think it was Earth Science or Life Science, I don’t remember, but it was Science, I know that! I took my time with the lesson, seeing as it was STILL only about 9:30 AM in the morning. I was learning about the formula for force when the factors mass and acceleration due to time were available, and then the lesson tried to twist me and test how logical I was going to be by asking what would happen if the factors force and acceleration due to time were shown, but you would have to find mass. Of course, if you all don’t know, I’m not a very logical person most of the time. Apparently, for this lesson, my brain *clicked* and used its logic. I ended up finishing the assessment test for the Science with a perfect grade of a 100%. After that I started to contemplate to myself.

“I think I want to be a scientist.” I thought to myself.

I never thought I would say it to myself, but I now said it, and am STILL surprised by the fact that I said those words. I don’t know why, but I guess the ease of Science this year has convinced me to grow a farther liking for it. Especially Math! I’m learning it a lot faster and a lot smarter as you’ll see throughout the day. But anyway, let’s continue with the day. You already got the point of the reasoning behind my wanting to be a scientist. After Science, I did Georgia Studies (it’s like history except specifically on Georgia), but unfortunately before I did Georgia Studies my brain decided to go bad and wanted to watch a few Youtube videos. I tried telling myself that only a few videos was acceptable, seeing as not much time was spent in the process (it was 10:20 AM in the morning). I watched a few ERBs (Epic Rap Battles) and got myself into a musical mood. Eventually I started to beat-box to myself again. Honestly, as bad as I sounded at the beginning, I thought I was getting better slowly. I mean, not all people are naturally good at the beginning. You gotta starts somewhere. I still need to be able to hum and make drum noises without making a slight split second pause between the hums and drum sounds. As I finished watching Youtube, making my promise to myself to only watch a few videos, I returned to Georgia Studies. We were learning mainly about the cult that formed after the Reconstruction act in Georgia when blacks were elected into the House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. I think you guys know these people: the Ku Klux Klan otherwise known as the KKK.

What surprised me even more was the fact that the KKK actually started in Tennessee and then stayed in Georgia to threaten blacks. Even though I did not fancy the study of Georgia (I liked to study other states, countries, and continents), I did learn that a lot of things during the Civil War all the way to the Reconstruction act were helped and supported a lot by Georgia and its bordering states. Something new I learned. Once I finished reading about two LONG pages about the KKK and how they tried to prevent the blacks from voting for republicans, I went straight to the assessment. Unfortunately, I failed the test. Reason being was because the first two questions were about specifically WHO was part of the House of Representatives or the U.S. Senate when there were SO many complicated names mentioned, I did not know what to pick. So I picked randomly. The other questions were correctly answered, except for the first two questions, which pissed me off a little bit. But no matter, I was still to have a positive Decemburrr feeling/mood.

After Georgia Studies I focused on my Math, since that was the last subject for the day (I love it when there are only 4 subjects in one day). It was a hard lesson, lemme tell you, but then my logic started kicking in again and I followed EXACTLY by the rules of how I was supposed to do the math formula in this lesson. They asked questions like:

“Jimmy works as a barber for $4.31 per hour during the afternoon shift, while in the evening shift he worked $7.12 per hour as a bar tender. One day Jimmy worked 53 hours in one week and earned a total of $318.35 in that week. How much did hours for each shift during that week did he work for?”

This is how I worked it out, or how they taught me to work it out, step by step:

H x $4.31 + (53 – h) x $7.12 = $318.35

$4.31h + $7.12(53 – h) = $318.35

$4.31h + $377.36 – $7.12h = $318.35

-$2.81h + $377.36 = $318.35

-$2.81h + $377.36 – $377.36 = $318.35 – $377.36

-$2.81h = -$59.01

-$2.81h/-$2.81h = -$59.01/-$2.81h

H = 21

So that means that Jimmy worked 21 hours as a barber and then 32 hours as a bartender!

Long equation, right? But it surely gets the answers correct. Unfortunately, another fate was destined for me. I failed the test because the last two questions out of 5 questions were asking which job spent this many hours. Now that I already knew the hours, I needed to place them at the right job. I didn’t, so that’s why I failed. I did the test again and passed. I guess I didn’t COMPLETELY know the lesson, but I did know 95% of it. xD After that, Math was done and so was school, so I had decided to go outside in the decent climate it was in and do some parkour and climbing. I did so by practicing climbing over the backyard fence and into the front yard porch which stood about 10 feet above the ground, so if I fell down with the condition my ankle and knee had been for the past two weeks, I probably would have fractured my leg. Fortunately, though, I was careful of where I clung my fingers onto so that if I used my muscles to support me up and therefore pushing my weight downwards it wouldn’t fall on me. It was a good exercise for my muscles and I got to breath a lot of Nature’s air. 🙂

Once I went back into the backyard through the fence back down the front yard porch, my father came outside and start questioning me about me climbing around the fences. I said it’s a practice for the skin on my hands to toughen up. Then he started acting sensitive and said “Why do you want to toughen your hands? You’re gonna get blisters!” Blah blah. I returned the questions with a true answer. I loved climbing outside and toughening my finger skin was gonna be a good exercise and advancement to my climbing skills. He stormed back inside the house and out my mother came. She gave me a lecture about how I needed to go brush my teeth, wash my face, put some zit ointment allover my face (because I forgot to), and then as I walked away into the house she questioned me again with:

“What did I say, Andrew?”

“Brush my teeth, wash my face, and then put zit ointment on.” I said rather lazily.

“Nope.” she said.

I widened my eyes, thinking she was messing with me. “I just said everything you told me to do.”

“No you got everything right EXCEPT for the fact that you need to check with me once you had the zit ointment done.”

I was pissed off and I wanted to say that she did not say that, because clearly I could remember it and hear what she was saying. But saying she never said that would get my mother pissed off as well, so I just said yes m’a’m and went to do the activities as told. I brushed my teeth, washed my face, and put the zit ointment on. After that, it was sort of funny because I was Skyping my friends during the day and about all of them wanted to video call me and I was like:

“Heck no! I’ve got all of this on my face.” xD

Once 10 minutes had passed and I felt that zit ointment was starting to dry, I went downstairs to my mother, checked with her, and then washed my face. Surprisingly enough, my face was not clear, but it was SO soft. I could not remember any other time I could feel the difference of how soft my face was. Though there were red spots on my cheeks from the hot water washing the ointment off, I still was happy with my soft cheeks and so was my mother. We both were happy, until I had informed specifically my father that I was done with school and my father and mother chipped in and told me the worst news to hear from a k12 parent. I had a Scantron to do today and then afterwards I had to do school with Anabelle. Cause apparently my mother is TOO busy watching the TV that she makes me do some school with Anabelle. I can’t complain though: she makes us GOOD food, I actually learn a lot of things from teaching Anabelle, and plus I always liked to teach Anabelle, as long as she was getting the lesson. The moment she would NOT get the lesson and tried to joke around and not pay attention I would get pissed off at her.

So I did my Scantron and on the bright side: while I was half-ass doing it, I still felt like I was gonna make a good grade and that it was pretty quick. If you are wondering what Scantron I did, it was Math. And if you are wondering  what a Scantron is you can ask me in the comments cause I don’t feel like explaining it in the post. As the day proceeded it got better. I listened to some filthy dubstep on Pandora, then did school with Anabelle, and then watched a nice, funny (actually hilarious I should say), heart-warming Christmas movie called, I think, Christmas Vacation. It was a good movie. What made it better was the fact that it made my father laugh and it put a smile on our faces. I think that my mother and I were the ones who laughed the most, though. xD Then afterwards, the day ended swell and I went to bed! So wherever you are in the world, just remember to stay positive for this month. Try to stay positive and be happy this month. For me! I bet it’ll work and make you happy! Anyway, thanks for reading! Bye!


A Trilogy of Weird Dreams

Hey guys, Andrew here. I’ll be hopping onto the topic quickly, since I always start with the beginning of the day. It’ll be something interesting and worth your while, so please read on.

So, yeah, for the past days on Thursday and Wednesday I’ve been having very long dreams, that looked so vivid. Every time I wake up from one of those dreams, I always think it was something real, as I was able to maneuver my body and think clearly. It felt SO real! Sometimes it takes me more than a few seconds to realize I just returned back to reality. It’s weird, I know. On Wednesday the dream was not as strong. I could remember it okay, at least most of the main parts of the dream, but it didn’t feel real. On Thursday, I had this crazy dream of Sarah, a girl I loved in the past, not too long ago. I guess I still have this crazy love-story for her, but I’m sort of getting used to the fact that she’s gone and I’ll hopefully find someone as great as her.

On that dream, with Sarah, I dreamt that she was in her house (at least in a house I dreamt of in my own vision) and somehow I had visited Iowa state. She owned a store or job at this place that looked like Kids R Us, so I assumed this was around my 16s in the dream, plus I looked pretty big and bulk xD. I met her at the store at night, some way knowing that she worked there and met up with her, almost as if nothing bad happened to us in the past. I went to her house, to drop her off from work, and then for some reason every time she walked away I screamed for her back.

Once she said “Bye”, I wanted to ask her a question, so I screamed in pain, thinking I was going to lose her. She responded back almost as if she didn’t realize my loud scream. She answered my question, and walked away. This happened again and then I finally let her go. I don’t know, it’s crazy, I was in love with her so much that I still have dreams about her! I still wish she would come back. But some of that later, I must continue.

So yes, that was Thursday and Wednesday, but let’s get back to Friday. Today I had a dream. No, scratch that, I had a trilogy of dreams; weird dreams. First dream I had was about this video I had posted on Youtube (I have a passion for Youtube and want to use Youtube to post videos) and when I returned it got 3,398 likes! Weird that I remember it, it was that vivid. I don’t know about you guys, but an average person who gets a million views usually only gets 1,000 to 2,000 likes, unless you have a lot of committed fans. But 3,398 likes is f*cking crazy. I told Savino about it, and it was great, everything was great. It was all great until I woke up, and went back to reality. It was crazy, I almost confused myself wondering what happened and what I remembered seeing.

Okay, so next dream, was once again about Sarah. I don’t remember the dream so well now, but I remembered it at that moment and felt I was in it. So yeah, an average dream with Sarah, I always enjoyed being with Sarah, even in my dreams she was smart, funny, and easy to talk to. I only remembered one part when I walked with her over the bridge, holding her hand. We talked and talked of things I don’t remember. It was one of the most happiest moments of my life. But when I woke up, that did it for me. I cried . . .

I mourned and cried wishing it wasn’t just a dream, wishing it was all real and I could still hold her hand just for a bit longer. I cried for a little bit in my bed, the tears strolled down my cheeks. It was a hard thing for me to process.

When I pulled myself together and stopped crying, I went back to sleep. Receiving, yet again, another dream. This dream was instead about something particularly different. Something I would have never thought or dreamt of. I dreamt of me in my average town home neighborhood with my friends, when all of the sudden, this girl was there. She was beautiful. Wavy blonde hair in such a silky way it glowed. Her eyes as blue as a blue moon. Her face structure was perfect, I don’t know how that mattered to me, but I noticed it very well. She was perfect. Almost angel like.

She kept scooting next to me, sitting very close to me. Which was something I did not mind AT ALL. She whispered in my ear that she thought I was cute, which I completely lost it there, I had a crush in that moment. Lol. She whispered it in my ear so many times until I knew this girl was into me. I cuddled with her a little bit, but then the dream shifted and changed into me sitting on a chair with Savino and Anthony, the boy I talked about earlier in my posts. They revealed to me some unusual news. They told me that the girl who called me cute and cuddled with me and crushed on me was no angel or normal girl. She was an old demon, disguised into a girl almost magnificently beautiful to deceive me.

They showed me this kind of shard that was placed in her throat. It almost projected as a red ruby. Believing this so easily, we got her to come to the house I was in and we sabotaged her. She pleaded me to spare her life, saying things “I love you Andrew” and stuff like that. But, instead the badass side of me took over and I ripped out the ruby out of her throat. Once that happened, she began to mutate, almost morph into something. She howled as she did so, her white skin pealing and her face forming a different shape. Once the mutation finished, she turned into an old looking witch. And that, I guess, was where the dream ended. I opened my eyes out of the dream, once again believing everything I saw was real. But it made me think of something, that girl, she was magnificently beautiful; angel almost, like I said. She made me contemplate for awhile about a certain subject. Was she going to be the girl in my life I wish I had? There was no girl who could top her, I couldn’t see it at least, but it was kind of a failure, and I decided to drop it. It was just going to be a thing I wish I would have had and I never would get it. So, I think now she’ll be at back of my head forever, but I’ve let the demon go xD.

Once those three dreams ended, the day went on normally. Me finishing my school (I got three subjects, cause 8th grade is boss on Friday), and I did my Math Scantron, which was extremely long and annoying. It was almost a whole monotonous process. 😛 Though I finished it, thinking I probably am not getting a good grade on that since I kind of skipped through. Oh well, I don’t care. As I finished up school I went outside with Simon (oops, he doesn’t want me to mention his name) and our average, annoying, across the street, street kid Austin as well as his brothers Alex and Trey. I spent time with them a little; Savino coming over in an instant. We eventually played some football; I got two touchdowns. 🙂 After that, we played bounty hunter. A game we had not played for awhile. I was, of course, the last one to get caught in bounty hunter (not bragging, I just have skill in that game since I made it up). But it was a fast 10 minute game because Alex messed us up and slowed us down.

Otherwise the day went great and sort of weirdly. I tried to schedule some plans of sleepovers with King and Savino and King had just revealed to me and Savino a shocking statement. He said “Xbox might be better than PS3”. Okay guys, I don’t know if you know this, but King, Savino, and I are PS3 nerds. We absolutely HATE Xbox. This type of information brought up, especially from King, was surprising and a bad reaction was immediately brought into the situation.

We argued for a little, eventually shutting each other up, and then moved on to other things and talked about random drugs and smoking. Don’t worry, we weren’t saying that we wanted to do it, we just said some experiences we had with people doing it so we could make a quick joke. Otherwise the day ended well. I tried also downloading Slender and Minecraft on my computer. I did and I had to download a graphics card just so the games would display, but they were SUPER laggy.

The day ended there and right now to this moment I am writing here, as my last piece of information of what I did today. Thank you for reading, this was a long post. 🙂

Finished Reading Scantron … Thank God!

Hey guys, Andrew here with another post. I don’t know, but after I post a post, lol,  I feel so into blogging that I want to write another post. So there you go. I finally have a topic to talk about. Rather now, I probably want to do topic talks instead of just blogging about my day. But I do have something that’s happened recently on my mind. Read on ..

If you don’t know what a Scantron is, then I’ll explain. It’s kind of this superficial test we take I think 4 or 2 times a whole year on Math and Reading to test our overall chart of improving throughout the year. I think it’s only for our school, or at least that’s what I think, correct me if I am wrong. So it’s kind of difficult, and I find it frustrating to do. It takes an hour or less at most, but it feels like forever literally and you just want it to be done with.

Recently, though, I had just done a Reading Scantron and finished it. This time, surprisingly, I felt it was easy, and that it was less in an hour finished. The reason why it feels that it takes so long is because they ask a lot of questions out of grade and then put them in a way to see if you’ll understand it properly. So, I guess the reason why I felt so confident and relaxed when I finished or did it, was because Reading lately has been my strongest subject. Literally, last year, I got an almost perfect grade on Reading, just missing it by one question. That’s freaking amazing, I don’t about you, but it is to me.

I do kind of want to be doing this good at all the other subjects, but Math and Science are my weakest subjects. Social Studies I’ve reached at a close limit a perfect grade missing I think two to three questions. ELA (English Language Arts) I missed only 4 to 3 questions. So I think I’m pretty good at school overall, I’m not falling behind on Math or Science, I just have normal average grades on them.

Because of last year’s result, my mother has been forcing me to work harder, which means improve on Math and Science. I have seen myself lately improving a lot. The reason why she wants me to improve, cause I’m already trying to work for a scholarship and also get myself ready and take the PSATs (a preparation for the SATs). Soon enough, I’ll have to take College Classes in High School. I’m already reading the Great Books, which counts as a huge credit count for a good college, which I highly suggest reading. I’ve already gotten to page 10 and my mind is blown. It does count a lot of philosophy though.

So yeah, Reading Scantron is done for now, I hope that Math will be as fast and simple as Reading. Hopefully …
